after 9 days...

So this will be my 5th year working in the International Book Fair in my hometown with a illustration workshop for kids and oh boy! this was a pretty cool year... finally i made it without losing my voice although i'm exhausted! 
My workshop was pretty cool, i was using the concept of Silent Book that encourage kiddos to understand the meaning and importance of the images and illustrations, and also, they'll create their own short story using just ink and a white crayon... and yessss the crayon was the difficult part but eventually they'll worked perfectly!... i cheated a lil bit telling them that the crayon had a mix of magic and science... but the best part was hearing yelling! is magic! it works!!! no matter their age their reaction was pretty much the same...
And after working 9 days straight from 8am to 8pm, taking a tiny nap between some sessions i finally made it with my voice, had a great team, i meet awesome people, i also got 2 signed books and my debit card is kinda crying (i think i spend more than i did from the past years on books... ooooopsie...) so well, i've got plenty books to read the next year... and yesss! i hold myself to buy books that are not just novels and else, i kicked myself to make a step forward to other areas and matters that i must to read and i left behind and  of course i regreted when i'm in the big deep hole of the ignorance...

coco..

This is not going to be an spoiler alert, recently i saw Coco pixar movie and it was adorable and great! i do really thing that the filmaker and the creators achieve the idea of Día de Muertos festivity, remembering our beloved ones, not forget our roots, keep our traditions and being close to our family...
I went to the Disney and México exhibition that also include the Art of Coco, i do really enjoy it, i never thought that Walt Disney had some fond attach to the country, no wonder why the three amigos and other shortfilms inspired by our country was released so long ago...

If you had the chance to visit this exhibition, just go and see it if you were a kid ..

weekend..

I went this past weekend with my brother to promote his new calendar and illustrations, it was terrific, his friends are always so gentle and great people to hang out... his event was on saturday and oh dear was so full of people waiting to see him which make me feel so proud of him..
we also went to museums, you'll see something cool about visiting the capital is about not to break the routine but to learn and enjoying everything that is different from your town...
So, if i can make a recommendation, go to the museums, historic places, avoid bars and i'm not saying that like a bitter grown adult but i guess is more that we learn what we see in museums, bars can be an extra hint to our travels ;)

up and down

how people handle sadness? how people can handle anxiety? how people can handle depression? this question are going on my mind lately... i'm considering myself a joyful person but when this feelings attacks me are just don't really know how to deal with it, i mean i could go to the drug store and get a pack of pills but i'm really attacking the root of it? for sure material thing can't fill this sentimental holes, pills would help to regulate the chemistry on my body, and is like all this melancholia are still there in a box with a lock that some "bad feeling" would unchained.... should i focus my feelings on other things and ignore what my body and soul feels? just a merely question that lately pop up on me lately and can't help myself to feel it

the camera...


it comes with the time when stared to value the company, the persons, the moments... and i guess we appreciate it when lost someone loved, we became to revalue all this precious things instead other that may pass to other order or so...
as the year stared, i lost one of my aunts, she kept a lot of thing around her that make her feel comfortable, things that remind her husband and the happy moment she had with him... i know is hard to start something when loss your soulmate and your partner of life, but keeping things around would not bring them back to life, is like she was trying to keep her memory with him, i feel so sorry about her loss... when i was younger (and immature tho) i thought that was absurd to keep all this things around her instead of enjoying what she got in life, like her sister and brother, nieces and nephews but now, i guess i thing different, guess with my kindness, she didn't want to get rid of all this things, she want it to keep them close to her to remember not to forget the one she loved...
now all her belongs are in other hands, some are bringing joy to other people or merely doing the job of what they initial are for
some of this stuff are now in my etsy shop, i'm pretty sure she kept it with care and trying to keep the memory of the one she loved
one of this objects are a camera, full functional, with a film on it, should i took photos and capture moments of joy or just keep it as a something that was bringing joy?? can't decide yet...

in the middle of the sewing...

i won't lie, my classes are freaking cool, although i've got to say that i may probably annoy my teacher, i just ask and ask and ask and seems like all my classmates are very confident or they have more practice than me... i put all the kind of notes and memos and tips and things in order to not forget or mess my pieces...
What i did was recycling a few t-shirts for thongs and briefs and well, some of them didn't end pretty well, i have some mistakes that totally makes me feel so frustrated, and after managing how to cut the fabric and see the pattern and making a full exploration on my undies's drawer i realize how to make them and also that i need to see example (pfff and i thought that was going to be like a puzzle...!)
How this things end it up?, well, i've got 6 pieces of undies (brief, thongs and boxers), still freaking out on "how the hell i'm gonna do the babydoll" and daring myself to do the robes, pijama and night gown.... 

This is like i always do, first comes with excitement, then with confusion and frustration, then with the pressure and at the end with the "oh! i've got that"... (the pics with the gorgeous fabrics are beyond of my range! they are specially made for other occasions, although i drool all over them...)
